I am in Elko on extended business, and have been staying at the High Desert. It's grimy, and smelly, because smoking is allowed in the hallways. The interior of the hotel tends to stay dirty, but I'll blame the plethora of mining/pipeline/construction workers that track mud and dust constantly (including myself). The staff is very friendly, and like another reviewer said, the place would be lovely if it were just kept up, and were more strict with their guests, i.e. people not picking up after their dogs, or leaving trash and spitting (yes, spitting) in the hallways. The fitness center is small, and I don't like that the hotel sells day passes for the pool, so the place is always packed with children. The rooms are grimy as well, but with the quality of guests they serve, they would have to remodel after each one. Its cheap and convenient enough for the average worker, with its bar/fitness cent/pool, and its location by the highway. I would not recommend it for a family with young children, though. I wouldn't want my kids touching any surface in that place. BTW the internet is nonexistent at the moment. Bring your aircards.
